This is a McCormick Deering type M 10 HP kerosene engine, serial number 1386, built in 1919 or early 1920.

The bore is oversized to 6-3/64' and has a stroke of 10' and a rated 10 horsepower turning at 425 RPM.

The skid and battery seat box are to scale of the original but made of white oak and stained in natural oak color. Total unit weight is about 3000 pounds.

I use gasoline to start and run it at shows with no load.

It will run under load on a mixture of kerosene and water if the load is enough to keep it hot.
